About the Homestay
I have been hosting international female students in my home for several years. My home is within walking distance of Boston College Newton Campus (Law School). It is also convenient to Boston University, BC - Chestnut Hill Campus and EF Language School.

Kay's HomeStay for Women
Twenty five girls from all over the world have lived in my house. This is the ideal set-up for an international student studying a 'semester abroad' at BC or BU.
Medical students doing clinical rotations are also welcome.
I rent out two private, furnished rooms on the third floor of my house. There is a bathroom on that floor that you will share with only one other student-tenant. All utilities, wifi and self-serve breakfast are included. Kitchen and laundry privileges. Women only. International students preferred. Must be least 20 years old. Rate $250 week January-July, $300 week August- December. See website for details.
